Mike Vardy an editor on Work Awesome. We could tell you where his personal productivity parody site, Eventualism and all of his other projects reside on the web, but you'd be best served going to and following the trail of virtual bread crumbs from there.

    Hey, Shawn – could you list here or somewhere the tutorials you followed to get good with Omnifocus? Is there a “right” way to use it? How’d you learn how?

    There is a great eBook called Using OmniFocus that covers a TON of OmniFocus stuff, here.

    The Omni Group has a handful of Video tutorials on their website, here.

    And I wrote a 5,000-word review on the whole suite of OmniFocus apps just a few months ago, here.

    Thanks, Shawn! Just what I was looking for.
